Seems that the EV pushers think everyone only drives locally or doesn't mind taking more than twice the time to go on a long trip.

Going any distance in an EV ? Bring a good book and a pillow.. :lol:

More than 25 years in development and EVs still can't get further than ICE vehicle have been able to travel for more than 100 years.

Its going to be a long time before we get to that point, charging on the fly would be fantastic but total infrastructure rebuild would need to take place first.
The EV idea is good unfortunately we do not have the technology or resources for the storage part of it!
